Charcoal was one of the hottest skincare ingredients of 2015 (fighting acne and dullness like no other), and its detoxifying powers aren’t limited to the skin. Activated charcoal’s list of accomplishments reads as follows: It whitens teeth, alleviates bloating and gas, promotes a healthy digestive tract, reduces joint pain, soothes insect bites, and more.
